Signs of the Times

From an editorial in the Chronicle-Tribune Marion, Indiana

A great many people have no religious experience because they give no consideration to religion. They make no provision in their lives for its exercise, and they direct no intelligent effort to its cultivation. The fact of the matter is, religion, like everything else, if one is to possess it and benefit by it, must be cultivated. When we consider that there is nothing that yields so large a return in life, nothing that is so productive of a genuine and enduring happiness, nothing that, to so great an extent, makes for a beautiful home life and good citizenship, nothing that so splendidly builds fine character and fits for useful service so surely as does religion, the wonder is that so few people give it the careful and intelligent attention it requires for its highest and fullest development.
